We made our way to Aurora, OR Sunday night with plenty of time to get settled and watch "The Amazing Race". There was a time, way back when Craig and I were first together, when we entertained the idea about submitting a video to try and get on that show, now we seem to have enough adventures to keep us entertained without having to race anyone else.
We keep passing these fields of yellow on our travels that past couple of weeks. Craig keeps saying it is some type of crop, but I'm leaning towards it just being weeds. Anyone out there want to chime in on what it might be? Our delivery went smooth again at Del Monte in Portland, OR, with the usual sit around and wait for a few hours, and then getting a door and being unloaded within 15 minutes. There was another driver complaining about the wait, but as Craig loves to say...."we get paid for sitting around, so it doesn't bother us". That comment usually doesn't promote a full fledged bitch session when only one party is complaining, so the other driver went in search of someone else to talk to.
After going empty, we needed to drop our trailer at the Fred Meyer DC in Clackamas, and then head over to Halton CAT back in Portland to have the truck looked at. A few days ago we got a dash light indicating some type of oil problem, however the truck was running just fine. We found the dealership and made use of their very nice customer lounge while they quickly went to work on our truck. A short 45 minutes later and a bad sensor was replaced and we were headed to the ThermoKing about 15 miles away to have the APU looked at. Again, within an hour, and after having to take everything off the bottom bunk, including the mattress, the APU was fixed, or so we thought.
We had received our next assignment to pick up a loaded trailer at the drop yard in Wisonville, OR. Upon hooking up and checking paperwork, we stayed there for the night and started the APU to test it out. Wouldn't you know it, about 1 minutes after starting it, it stopped and flashed an error code. Oh well, maybe after our delivery this morning we can be routed back to ThermoKing to have it checked again.
